On February 2, everyone’s favorite groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring.  Well, it’s now March, there’s new snow on the ground and everyone is still bundled up in puffer jackets and snow boots. Even though it seems like spring will never arrive, it’s time for teens to begin thinking ahead to summer and summer jobs.

The online application for Learn & Earn will open Monday, March 11 and close Friday, May 31, and you can get help completing it at the Library.

Learn & Earn is a six-week summer employment program for teens and young adults ages 14-21 in the Pittsburgh region. Participants can earn money, gain valuable work experience and develop soft skills to help them become college and career ready.

The online application can be found at www.jobs4summer.org. Young people can access computers and get assistance completing the application at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Main (Oakland) and all CLP neighborhood locations, as well as at other Application Support Centers located throughout the county.
